Joe Strummer and his band the “Mescaleros” came to New York to play five shows at the new venue “St. Ann’s Warehouse” under the Brooklyn Bridge. What a week it was! The shows were great and we stayed up partying till dawn each night. Joe played new material from the Mescaleros two albums, as well as some old favorites from the Clash days.
Joe Strummer and his band the Mescaleros played their new album, “Global A Go-Go” at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square. The new songs are very good, with a mix of many musical forms coming together so well that once you hear it you want to keep playing it over and over. They are playing a mini tour of record stores in major cities to be followed by a full scale tour in the fall. Watch for them!
